#App of the Day: Overdrive

I blogged about my library being a great resource for books, eBooks, audiobooks, music, movies and TV shows. They are available in physical and digital formats. There are two apps used to access my library’s digital content: Overdrive and Hoopla.  I have been using digital formats almost exclusively now instead of physical.

Overdrive is my favorite app for eBooks and Audiobooks from my library. I can access content 24/7 and so the library comes to me. Titles I borrow are automatically returned so no more late fees. I can place holds and create wish lists. I can setup my library’s overdrive account to automatically check out an eBook or Audiobook as soon as it becomes available.

I have the Overdrive app on my Samsung Note 4 with its 5.7 inch screen and my tablet with its 7 inch screen. I can sync libraries, bookmarks, and recent positions in my books across all my mobile devices. If I am in front of a computer I can also access my borrow content via a browser as well and it is all synchronized.

You will need a valid account with a participating library, school, or other institution. Each library builds its own collection of titles. I access my library’s Overdrive titles via the website or through the app. Enjoy and Happy Reading.
